Does College Matter?

With soaring student debt, innovative technology, and new-fashioned careers—we wanted to ask the question: does college still matter? The second season of “Does College Matter?” will bring you insights from role models who have navigated a variety of worlds – from college and entrepreneurship to coding academies and the work place. With thought leaders such as Google’s Chief Education Evangelist, Jaime Casap; the CEO of Remind, Brett Kopf; and Sarah Green-Carmichael from Harvard Business Review chiming in, we ask entrepreneurs, podcasters, educators, and students alike: did college matter for you?
